Lemonade and Cookies Please!

Taylor decorating bags for cookies 

Taylor has been really busy planning her lemonade stand, and having her Mom bake like crazy! We are planning to have the lemonade stand for tomorrow, Thursday July 12th, from 1:00pm-3:00pm in front of her house, 110 Sunterra Way in Sherwood Park.

Honestly, no idea how many people we will have as its a pretty quiet street, but everyone is welcome to come by. I know it is the middle of the week, during the work day for most, so totally understand if people cannot make it. Taylor has been so eager to have a lemonade stand, to raise money for Kids with Cancer Society, that I told Mindy we should just do it! We will see how Taylor likes it and so it was important to keep it short in case she gets too bored.

We have an AWESOME collection of cookies. I made some oatmeal with butterscotch chips and pecans, as well as an oatmeal with peanut chips and a few pecans:
Oatmeal with Peanut Butter Chips and Pecans
Here are the batches Mindy has created...they are super good!
Oatmeal Butterscotch Pecan
Milk Chocolate Chip
Monster Cookies
Kids Crazy Cookie-gummy bears, fizzes, and chocolate chips
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip
Chocolate Chip
We will also have lemonade! Bahahaha

So Taylor says pricing is as follows:

  • $1.00 glass of lemonade
  • $1.00 a cookie
  • $5.00 for 5 cookies
All money she makes is going to Kids with Cancer Society. She raised $400.00 already at her Dad's birthday party, so she is doing great!

In regards to Taylor's health. She is still doing really well. I do notice she does continue to power down by around 5:00pm. 

Today she went fishing with her Dad, and she even caught a fish! Thank you to Benjamin Wilkins for lending Landon the boat, they had a great time. Taylor was so excited, went to bed early and then was up and ready to go this morning. 

Got one!

Look at that beauty!

I guess most places have "catch-and-release" right now, so Landon was looking up which ones you had to put back and which ones you could keep. There were apparently 3 kinds you could keep, so he told this to Taylor, and she was a like "there is only 3 fish in the water we can catch?" bahahaha she thought the whole lake only had 3 fish and that was what they were going to try to catch!

I will sign off for now. Hope to see people tomorrow!
